Why We Love Duval Street

Key West is a small island city with a very diverse population.  While  certainly a wealthy community, there are also plenty of regular folk just trying to make a living in Paradise.  While there are lots of snowbirds here in winter, making the average age tilt toward the retirement generation, there’ s a vibrant youthful energy on Duval Street, with kids, twenty-somethings, rockers, skaters, and even a small underworld that’s kept closely in check by our friendly Key West Police department.

In short, Duval Street is a microcosm of a larger city, with many of the elements found only in larger metropolitan areas without the pitfalls that come with urbanization… like major crime and stress.  This is the start of a long list of reasons why we love Duval Street!

Stay with us and we’ll take you on a photo-video journey up and down Duval, from Key West’s South Beach to Mallory Square.  In addition to streetlife on Duval, you can check out bars, hotels, restaurants, shopping, and festivals.  It’s all here on one crazy street called Duval.
